Sphinx Rock Coastal Hike, Portsea




Sphinx Rock is an unusual rocky outcrop in the Mornington Peninsula National Park, at the southern end of the Portsea Surf Beach, about 70 km south of Melbourne.

I visited the Rock on Monday April 27 2009, a bleak, windy and overcast day!

I started at the upper car park at the end of Back Beach Rd, Portsea, then descended to the beach, passing the Portsea Surf Life Saving Club.

From there, I continued along the beach and the windswept sand dunes to the Rock itself, and up a wooden staircase to a viewing platform.

From there, I returned to home base, a distance of about 4 km.

This walk forms part of the long 24 km South Coast Trail, which extends from London Bridge (Portsea) to Cape Schanck.

The viewing platform can also be reached from a walking track from the end of Normanby Rd, Sorrento, or from the carpark at the end of Ocean Beach Rd Sorrento.
